Expertise outranks rank

Safe Care Culture

Safe Care Culture brings safety to life!

Everyone who operates within the Safe Care Culture commitment in their workplace looks after their own safety and everyone else’s simultaneously.

Safe Care Culture empowers the organisation and its people and teams to step out of a defensive position [the drama triangle] into a collaborative place [presence] via above & below the line mindset change. This is enabled by a profiling tool that focuses on best self & minimises time in the shadow.

Safe Care Culture is a New Possibility – where workplace culture, leadership, and safety management converge. Past successful, evidence-based implementations enable your organisation substantial improvements in absenteeism, safety, engagement, and productivity.
